Overall Satisfaction with Symantec Endpoint Security

We have it installed on our server and workstations to help protect against viruses and malware. The installation and deployment process was quick and easy. The server-side program allows for easy deployment and updates to all the workstations which is a huge time saver.
  • Real time - virus scan
  • Real Time - firewall detection
  • Real time - anti-malware
  • price point, it would be nice if the per user license was a little cheaper
  • Can be a pain for end users when trying to install new application on their workstations
  • We have had some issues with using the program along with drive encryption
  • ease of install and deployment
  • Generally it runs seamless in the background without causing issues for the end users
  • easy updates from the server to the workstations
  • It would be nice of the yearly cost was a little lower
  • We have reduced some of our IT costs as we can remotely update the workstations from the Server.
  • Some end users have complained about having issues installing 3rd party software which has increased calls to the IT department.
The versions of McAfee that we've tried don't really cover our small business needs like Symantec Endpoint Security does.
